Casey Calls for Sanctions on Libya
Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), also the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Near Eastern and South and Central Asian Affairs, has just released a statement declaring his support for sanctions on Libya in response to Colonel Qadaffi’s violent response to peaceful protesters. The statement reads:
“Along with the international community, the United States should impose tough sanctions on Libya now and show Qaddafi that his barbaric actions violate the most basic norms of how a government should treat its citizens.
“In addition, the United Nations Security Council should examine the entire array of options available to it, potentially including a no-fly zone over Libya. The killing of innocent demonstrators must stop now.”
